WATCH: Teacher Whitesplains His Use Of ‘N***er’ To Black Student, Fails MISERABLY (VIDEO)

Just when you think you’ve seen everything, a video pops up online showing a white teacher trying to explain to a black student that it’s okay to use the n-word.

In Louisiana, at Ben Franklin High School, a teacher referenced as “Coach Ryan” is seen on video in a heated discussion with a black student. The student is clearly upset with the teacher and would like Coach Ryan to stop using the n-word.

The teacher even went so far as to say that it’s a “commoditized word” that holds no negative meaning anymore and that people need to move on from thinking that it’s bad.

You can hear the student say:

“That’s racist as sh*t. Why can you not understand that it’s racist for a white man to say ‘n***er’ to a black man? It’s f*cking racist.”

Watch the interaction here:

It’s unbelievable, yet unfortunately believable, that a teacher in the year 2017 would not only think that it’s okay to use the n-word, but to also try to argue with a black student about it, and insist that it’s not racist.

The Root reports:

“According to the TImes-Picayune, students went to the principal’s office after class with the intent of staging a sit-in that instead turned into an hourlong assembly.

 Widhalm said that students from different backgrounds had “a very good dialogue about the difficulties and the issues that still exist around race, around identity, around the things that aren’t resolved.”

Videos and photos of the assembly circulated on social media, too, with a different student talking about the stigma that black people face in society.”

It’s good that a great discussion stemmed from such a profoundly awful situation, but hopefully, that teacher has also been reprimanded for his insanely derogatory speech. When our educators are trying to educate that racism is okay, that’s not okay at all.
